You've highlightest my sentiments well :-)
The past is no excuse for running a poor shop now.
there have been multiple incidents over the last 3 years alone that
should wake people up to the problems with their sysadmin and security
staff's lack of skill be people seem not to care at all.

It's ironic to note that most companies who 'dont care', do so because
they don't want to pay the slightly higher buck for good staff or decent
training (hard to find). While at the same time it is these companies
that struggle to float while the ones spending the money get staff who
really care about their work and thus impress the customers more.

(this is of course just one point of view and not the only reasons
companies float/sink).
